  • Added a new death message for being killed by an entity’s wither skull projectile, “<player> was shot by a <entity>’s skull”.


Dual wield
  • Item can be swapped into the off-hand from any open inventory, instead from only the hotbar.
  • If the player has the Mending enchantment on any items, XP will now always go to healing the items before going to the XP bar.
    • Before, the enchantment would randomly choose an item when XP was received. If the item was fully healed, the XP would go to the XP bar.
  • When fishing, treasure loot can now only be obtained by fishing in open waters.
    • A fishing location is considered to be open water if each layer in the 5x4x5 area around the bobber meets one and only one of the following criteria:
  • Lily pads are now considered junk fishing loot rather than treasure.
Knockback resistance
  • Is now a scale of the amount of knockback taken instead of a probability to take no knockback.

    • Shearing sheep (a regression from 1.15.2).[13]
    • Feeding a brown mooshroom.[14]
    • Using a spawn egg on a mob to spawn a baby variant, if there wouldn’t also be a block within reach through said mob.[15]
  • Hand animations for the following have been removed:

    • Changed generic.attackSpeed to generic.attack_speed
    • Changed generic.armorToughness to generic.armor_toughness.
Block storage format
  • Block storage format in chunks has been slightly changed to speed up various tasks (rendering, pathfinding, world generation, etc.).
    • BlockStates in Sections elements no longer contain values stretching over multiple 64-bit fields.
      • If the number of bits per block is not power of two (i.e. single 64-bit value can’t fill whole number of blockstates) some bits will not be used.
      • For example, if a single block state takes 5 bits, the highest 4 bits of every 64-bit field will be unused. That also means a slight increase in storage size (in case of 5 bits, from 320 to 342 64-bit fields).
  • Changed the capitalization of “Click to copy to Clipboard” to “Click to Copy to Clipboard”.
  • Changed “Your home bed was missing or obstructed” to “You have no home bed or charged respawn anchor, or it was obstructed”.

  • If existing datapacks prevent world from loading, the game will give option to load world in safe mode, which loads only vanilla datapack.
  • Added --safeMode option for servers to load only with vanilla datapack.
  • Game will detect any critical datapack issues, such as required tags being missing, and prevent the world from being loaded.
  • Entering the world in an unknown dimension (caused by disabling a data pack which added said dimension) now puts the player in the Overworld at the same coordinates.
Debug menu
  • When outside the world’s vertical area, the debug menu no longer lists ‘minecraft:the_void’ as the biome.
    • Instead, it simply hides the biome information.
Floating-point precision
Bone meal particles being generated at the corner of the block instead of at the mushroom, one of many precision loss bugs fixed by 1.16.
  • As a result, the effects appear in the correct places even if the player is far away from the spawn point (with effects being the most extreme when over 16,777,216 blocks away). See Distance effects in Java Edition for a further explanation and history of such effects.
  • The following precision loss errors are fixed:
    • Bone meal particles should now appear at the right position.[19]
    • Lava embers and popping sounds should now originate from the correct positions.[20]
    • Campfire embers should now be generated at the correct position.[21]
    • Particles from redstone repeaters should now appear at the correct position.[22]
    • Particles from nether biomes should now appear at the correct position.[23]
    • Particles from adding eye of enders to end portal frames should now appear at the correct position.[24]
    • Particles dripping from leaves during rain will no longer snap to block corners and are correctly randomized across the underside of the block.[25]
    • The book of the enchanting table now opens properly at high distances; previously there were cases where the player could be pressed right up to the block, yet the book would not acknowledge them.[26]
    • TNT ignited by other explosions now appears at the right locations at high distances.[27]
    • Detector rails at high distances were not always being correctly powered and depowered, which has been fixed.[28]
    • Mob spawning would also break down, spawning mobs at block corners and sometimes inside of other blocks.[29]
    • Generation of minecart with chests in mineshafts will now spawn them at the intended positions.[30].
  • Fire now has a hitbox, unlike previously, where it did not, when putting out fire required targeting its base blocks.
  • Redstone dust’s hitbox now correctly confirms to its shape, much like the hitboxes of fences, walls, glass panes and iron bars.
    • This also includes when the redstone is traveling up a vertical surface, so the upwards portion can be targeted without hitting the block underlying.
Loot tables
  • Entity Predicate
    • Added fishing_hook sub-predicate.
  • fishing_hook
    • Check properties of the fishing hook.
    • in_open_water parameter matches whether the fishing location is open water fishing or not.
    • Can be set to “false” in-game files to make AFK fishing farms work again. This will remove the restriction of only being able to obtain loot from normal waters.
Main menu
  • The main menu background is now set in the Nether.
  • The “Singleplayer” button will jump directly to “Create World” screen if there are no worlds to select.
  • Added new nether wood material.
    • Uses the wood material color.
    • Uses default properties.

During online play, you may be exposed to unmoderated chat messages or other types of user-generated content that may not be suitable for everyone.”
NBT tags
  • The Dimension NBT tag is now a namespaced ID string instead of a number, which is used in player.dat.
Obsidian platform
  • Obsidian platform now can get regenerated when a non-player entity enters the End through an end portal.
Optimizing Worlds
  • The progress bar when optimizing worlds are now color-coded according to the type of dimension, and the ratio is calculated according to the number of chunks to optimize for each.

    • Was previously “‘Fancy’ graphics balances performance and quality for the majority of machines.”
  • Glint.png Bone meal particles
    • Now use 64-bit floats for spawning, not 32-bit.
      • This means that using bone meal at high distances from the world origin (notably greater than 17 million) will cause the particles to appear in expected places, and not far away from the target.
  • Cached repeated block type lookups and collisions during pathfinding for increased performance.
  • Top-level element in predicate file can now be array (all contents will be ANDed).
  • Removed translation strings of:

  • Added a enable-status option to the server.properties file which if set to false will suppress replies to status requests from clients.
    • This makes the server appear offline in the multiplayer screen.
  • Added control over how much entity data a server sends to clients: entity-broadcast-range-percentage server property, controlling how close entities need to be before being sent to clients.
    • Higher values mean entities are visible further away from players but cause more network traffic.
    • Specifies a percentage of the default value so, for example, 50 specifies half of the default range.
